Mystery Number One

September 30, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Saturday, we drove to Murphy, North Carolina. We stopped on the way to explore the route of our railroad trip along the banks of the Hiwassee River in southeastern Tennessee. We stopped at one of the parks and walked down to the river bed and found thousands of exposed rocks. At first they just looked dark, but on inspection they had streaks of green as if some meticulous painter had been very busy. I wondered if they weren't some oxidized copper residue, as they were copper mines in the past in the area. Judy thought they were some plant material as it scraped off fairly easily. It's still a mystery to us, but I found that the autumn leaves that had fallen onto the rocks created a picturesque landscape. I seem to find a picture everywhere.
